I take all my conference notes on my laptop, or occasionally on a tablet. Sometimes, I’ll want to take a screenshot of a powerpoint slide or a demo to add to my notes.

It’ll identify the framing and correct the image, so you can save it as a picture or a PDF, or beam it to another mobile device or computer.
Point it at the screen:
… and once you’ve taken the picture, it’ll beautify the image:
This is a killer app for conferences.
